The Fever (x2)

She don't know what she's talking about
Yeah, she's running on empty
She can't sing, she just screams and shouts
Yeah, she's running on empty

She can't feel for the second choosing
To live her life without you
She'd be the one to - she'd be the one to
Try and find what I'm after

b. She don't know what she's talking about
Yeah, she can't sing, she just screams and shouts

c. He thinks it's easy
But it's not easy
Because without him
My heart is empty

He thinks it's easy
But it's not easy
Because without him
My heart is empty

She don't know what she's talking about
Yeah, she's running on empty
She an't sing, she just screams and shouts
Yeah, she's running on empty

She'd be the one to say 'I don't know
I don't know anything about you'
But she can't live - she can't live -
She can't live without you

She don't know what she's talking about
Yeah, she can't sing, she just screams and shouts

The Fever (x2)

She don't know what she's talking about
Yeah, she can't sing, she just screams and shouts

(B and C in unison four times)
(A joins in on third time)

    General CommentWell I've never heard this from anyone else, but I know most of the songs on Pawn Shoppe Heart are bitching about SOMEONE, and to me this is just Karen O all over. Evidence! :

    -The song is called "the fever." The debut album of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's (Karen's band) is called "fever to tell."

    -"She Don't know what she's talking about." Kind of harks back to the title link again - what exactly is she telling us? I'm not a YYY fan, so it kinda resonates ;)

    -"Yeah she's running on empty." I think this relates to her name, Karen O - that big old empty zero like O on the end.

    -"She can't sing, she just screams and shouts." a fair accusation in the eyes of anyone who has heard karen's 'unique' vocal stylings ;)

    General CommentThats an interesting interpretation. ^_^

    But I always thought this song was about some kind of love/hate relationship... i.e. "you piss me off like nothing else but dont ever leave me", sort of. And its a typical, common problem in relationships, and in this song its being referred to as "The Fever".
